Description

Salvia Rose Rhapsody has a rich, densely packed display of long soft pink spikes in summer. It is medium in size, and tolerates both heat and humidity well. Spent flowers should be removed to encourage repeat flowering, so that the plant does not spend its energy on making seeds. It is attractive to butterflies, bees and the foliage is aromatic.

The soil should not dry out completely, even though the plant can tolerate drought.

In mild areas the plant will stay green over winter, but should be cut back hard in spring to encourage new growth.
